RE: [Condor-users] dropping support for some Condor platforms


We use Gentoo Linux for our master and condorview boxes, so more attention
that way would be nice..  We could make a binary ebuild for the fedora
package and shoe-horn it, but ultimately having the source for a true ebuild
would be nice.

Subject: [Condor-users] dropping support for some Condor platforms

Hello -

In upcoming Condor releases, we hope to drop support for several platforms,
and would like to gage reaction from our user base before we go ahead and do

We do not believe that removing support for Solaris 2.6 or 2.7 on SPARC, or
Digital UNIX 4.0f, or HP-UX 10.20 will impact our user community - all of
these operating systems are several revisions behind (in fact, some have
been completely end-of-lifed by the vendor) and are causing us quite a bit
of difficulty to continue to maintain. We expect that most if not all Condor
users have already migrated to more modern versions of Solaris, HP-UX, or

In the near-term, we do expect to release versions of Condor for Linux on
AMD64, Fedora Core 2 on x86, and HP-UX 11.11 on PA-RISC. 
Solaris 10, FreeBSD on x86, and Linux on PowerPC are also likely. 

Please let us know if removing these platforms presents a problem for, or if
there are any platforms that we should be supporting.
